Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening uses whitening products and treatments to make your teeth many shades whiter without pain, downtime, or unpleasant side effects. Some of the numerous benefits associated with teeth whitening include:

  • Whiter teeth
  • More attractive smile
  • More self-confidence
  • No downtime
  • In-office and at-home options
  • No side effects
  • Long-lasting results

Because the Cedar Mountain Dental team offers a wide array of whitening treatments, you’re sure to find one that matches your needs, preferences, and lifestyle.

What causes tooth discoloration?

Some lifestyle habits, foods, and drinks can cause teeth staining. Examples include:

  • Some medications
  • Smoking
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Soy sauce 
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soda
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Tooth trauma
  • Enamel erosion

Tooth staining often occurs over time, regardless of diet and other lifestyle habits, which is why the Cedar Mountain Dental team offers several whitening options to correct the problem.

What are the different types of teeth whitening?

Talk with your dentist about the best way to whiten your teeth. They might recommend:

In-office teeth whitening

During in-office teeth whitening, your provider uses teeth trays to apply a whitening gel to your teeth while you relax. They might use a special light or laser to accelerate healing and create the whiter shade you desire in less than an hour.

Dental bonding

During dental bonding, your dentist applies composite resins to your teeth. You and your dentist decide which shade of white resin materials are right for you.

At-home whitening

Your dentist offers at-home, professional-strength bleaching products, and custom teeth trays if you prefer whitening your teeth at your home. While multiple treatments are often needed to achieve the same results as in-office whitening, some patients prefer this method.

Over-the-counter bleaching

Many over-the-counter teeth whitening products can whiten your teeth too, but these products aren’t as strong as whitening available at Cedar Mountain Dental. Examples of over-the-counter products include whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, and whitening strips. These products won’t offer the exceptional results that in-office or at-home Cedar Mountain Dental treatments do.

Which teeth whitening procedure is right for me?

Your dentist examines your teeth, discusses your desired results, and asks about your preferences to determine which teeth whitening procedure best matches your needs. Periodic whitening touch-ups and limiting foods and drinks that stain helps you maintain long-lasting results.
